than 25,000 guests visited Mountain High from Nov. 22-28, making it the best Thanksgiving week in the resort’s history. The North Pole Tubing Park
also opened this weekend making it its earliest opening ever.
“We’re off to a great start this
season. The conditions have been incredible and, thanks to improvements
in our snowmaking system, we’re now able to open more trails faster
than ever before,” says
Karl Kapuscinski, President and CEO.
High opened this season on Nov. 11 the first resort to open in
Southern California for the 14th straight year. Non-stop snowmaking set
the tone for the first weekend and the resort soon went from three
trails to 10 offering terrain for all levels of skiers and
Several days of warm weather slowed operations but a
small storm and aggressive snowmaking just prior to Thanksgiving allowed
the area to open the majority of its West Resort and accommodate the
huge influx of holiday attendees.
Just like tickets, season passes have
been selling quickly and the resort will sell out of its discounted
$349 Anytime Pass on Dec. 1, 23 days sooner than last year.
Karl, “This early-season has been one of our best ever. People seem to
spending again and the weather has been perfect for snowmaking. We
look forward to it being a great year.”
